George Brettingham Sowerby jnr (1788 - 1854) was part of a remarkable family of natural history illustrators.
His grandfather James was a botanical illustrator par excellence. His three sons all followed in his footsteps, as did three grandsons and one great-grandson. George Brettingham jnr. took over the mantle of conchologist from his father. He helped create many beautiful illustrations of seashells. In fact, it took three generations of Sowerbys over forty-five years to complete that work.
Here are some of his prints of seashells, sealife and fossils for you to choose from. They are genuine antique engravings and were made in the period 1810 - 1850.
